For several years this blog has been an admirer of Nicole Cooke, the Bridgend cyclist. I was outraged that she was not declared Britain's top sportsperson for the last two years. Her achievements have been outstanding. For two years she has been indisputably the best female cyclist in the world. For two years, I placed her ahead of Joe Calzaghe - even after the Lacey demolition. Today the world knows just how good she is. Never has anyone more deserved to win an Olympic Gold medal. Just watch this video clip - and then watch it again. Brilliant. Just brilliant. Wales rules the world.
